Heading Through Another Week

It’s been a busy week so far. Not that we’ve been doing too much that is out of the ordinary, but the election added some busy-ness. I’m a politics junkie, so I’ve been spending a lot of time following the election, and Tuesday night I stayed up WAY past my bedtime watching the returns. And then, had to take a nap yesterday to counteract the late night – thank goodness Wednesday is my day off from work.

This morning I got up, checked my email, and was very excited to have an email from our realtor letting me know that she’s setting up a showing for the house, either tomorrow or Saturday. Every time we have a showing and it doesn’t go anywhere, we tell ourselves that we’re not going to get excited next time. But I think I’m realizing that it’s really impossible not to have that thrill of excitement when my mind thinks, what if? will this be THE one?

So tonight we will be back to the cleaning and pickup mode. Our trailer is still at the repair place (the first coolant unit was no good, so they are waiting for another one). So that means (on the positive side) that our driveway will be nice and open. But it also means (on the not-so-positive side), that we have to bring all our crap out to the car, and that our kitties will be spending a not so happy hour and a half sitting in their carriers in the back of the truck while the showing is going on. Flirt male Definitely a little more of a challenge, but SO worth it! And, one of these times will be the LAST time!!


  1. Stay positive and shine up your counter tops. Yes, this could be the one. Please know we're thinking of you.

  2. I remember that feeling oh so well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you guys. Watching that retirement countdown too!

  3. It is hard to keep telling yourself not to get excited because once the home is sold you can enjoy so much more freedom. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. It only take one buyer! The right one. Hope this one it it.

  5. Hoping things go your way. It's hard not to get excited.
